Calponin interacts with several Ca2+ binding proteins in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner. In order to determine the possible biological relevance of these interactions in smooth muscle function, it is necessary to characterize the strength and stoichiometry of the complexes formed. The interaction between calponin and calmodulin can be monitored through an acrylodan label on a cysteine of calponin. The fluorescently labeled calponin possesses the same biological function and physical behavior in… CONTINUE READING
